My wife LOVES her Janome Magnolia! She has a beginner Singer for a while until I surprised her with this for Christmas- So smooth, well constructed and she says it feels so good to sew with! SOLID.
I have two other Janomes, one of which I love and take to classes and one big Horizon that has its issues but still is a workhorse.
I bought this Magnolia based on a review in a current American Sewing Guild newsletter. I use it for teaching 8-12 year olds to sew. It is a safe machine because I can control the speed no matter how hard they step on the pedal. (I have not yet taught them how to use the start/stop button.) The machine is easy for them to thread and change needles. Even if you are not going to teach, you will find this a great basic machine for yourself and a good value with very good features.
I am a first time sewer and I wanted a solid machine below $400. I wanted something I could grow into, but something that wouldn't overwhelm me. I had gone online to research machines. I was actually considering the Brother CS6000I before I had even heard of the Janome 7330. At the time there were 97 reviews on Amazon for the Brother CS6000I and I read every one. I was concerned b/c the low rated Brother reviews and even many of the 4 and 5 star reviews complained about the machine's tension and a finicky bobbin. The last thing I wanted to deal with was a touchy machine. If you read the reviews, without looking at the stars, most of them talk about the machine's quirks. I started to wonder if the Brother was trying to be too far reaching for it's price point. I was also wondering why so many were willing to overlook this touchiness that they all mentioned.
I went to SewVacDirect.com and did an online "ask a consultant" thing. I asked the person about the Brother CS6000I and the person directed me to the Janome. I had never heard of Janome before, but the consultant said that the Janome was far more sturdy than the Brother and that it was very easy to use. Still unsure, I decided to go to a store to see the machines in person.
After seeing the Janome and the Brother in action, I came home with the Janome 7330. After seeing the two machines work, I did feel that the Janome was better made and more sturdy. I felt more confident in the Janome's ability to grow with me through the years and felt it was more of the work horse that I was looking for. Twenty minutes after opening the box I was sewing. I'd never touched a machine before and I was sewing! It was as easy to use as they had told me. No weird finicky tricks to learn; just a solid machine.
The 7330 is computerized. It has a good number of stitches, including 5 different overcast stitches, three different one-step button holes, a darning stitch, and good number of decorative stitches. It has a free arm that has been great for doing the small arm and leg holes on the children's clothing I've been making. It has a foot pedal, although you can also use it sans the pedal. It has an up/down button that "remembers" if you last made the needle stay down when you stopped stitching. It also has a reverse button and an automatic needle threader. It's very easy to wind the bobbin and you just pop open the little lid and drop it in the hole. Super easy!
The instruction manual is very easy to follow and it comes with an all purpose presser foot, a satin foot (great for sewing on buttons!), a button foot, and a zipper foot. It also comes with a seam ripper, some bobbins, a brush for cleaning, a screw driver, and some plastic rings that hold the spool of thread in place.
When I told my friends that I had purchased a Janome, all of them said it was a very good brand. I found out that is a Japanese company and Janome means "eye of the snake" as it was one of the pioneers of using a round bobbin instead of a long shuttle back in the 1920's. Janome was the first to make a computerized sewing machine in the 1970's. I'm including this information b/c if you've never heard of this brand before, it's not a fly by night. It's been around for awhile and it has a very good reputation with those who know it. I also found that Janome sponsors a DIY website, threadbanger.com, which has some really neat ways to be green by reusing, recycling, and reconstructing things.
In conclusion, go to a retailer and see for yourself. It's a solid machine!!
It has been a few years since I wrote this review and I am still pleased with the sewing machine. I take good care of it and clean it regularily; it hasn't needed any other maintenance or repair. My skills have grown and the machine is still a good fit.
To ward off future nasty-grams, I will tell you that I have not been paid to write my review! I bought my machine with my own money, did my own research, and it was a decent sized investment for me and my family. I received no compensation, freebies, or perks. My own excitement and my own excellent experience is what motivated me to write my review. As I said before, go try one and see if it's a good fit for you.
OK so maybe it is not the machine for an expert sewist, but would that person really be shopping here for a machine? :-)
With that said, I started sewing in 2010 and I was given a 30 year old White machine to learn on. It still runs well but to me, is a bit hard for a beginner to learn on. I still have it of course, but I have found with my Janome I have been able to rapidly advance to more complex projects.
I won't list all the specs as they are listed in the product information as well as repeated in many reviews, but I will say that it is a great, quiet workhorse capable of most any project. If you're looking on Amazon you are probably looking for a great deal and you have found it with this.
